    Judas Iscariot

    Ok if that is the way you feel but it was not a threat. I do not know why you are so angry, oh well I guess I will leave this discussion, because all it will lead to is bickering, you have your thoughts i have mine. Can we at least agree with that (you have your thoughts, I have mine) ?

    No that was not a threat, it was said for your good, to be careful, and I did not send you an email to start some argument, there was no intention in that way, the reason why I said that I had a feeling you would react the way you did, was as a result of the way you reacted at the end of our email discussion. No it is not showing off to participate in the forums, but the way you brought things out, as if it is wrong to first email someone, and then bring things out the way you did, seems very boastful and showing off. I now know that you would prefer a discussion on a forum first before some type of email, but me, myself I see neither as being wrong. I saw some of your threads, i found to be good, so I decided to email you, to see were you were coming from in your beliefs. But things went sour, and i was careful the way i approached you because i do not know you, which of course you do not know me. And would have shared more, but I guess you seem not want to have a discussion.

    First of all what is wrong with asking what someone's view is in a private email, or on a forum, why do you have to show off what you believe on a forum ? I kind of knew you would stir up something and bring attention to yourself. I can easily defend my position with loads of scriptures, but I will not do so with you, because your attitude is not good. You are very judgmental, and you do not know me at all, just be careful 1sheep, that is all I will say.

    Judas Iscariot

    He no doubt was taught it by Jesus, and he was a follower of Christ. He listened to the call of following Christ. Anyone can have an hardened heart if they allow themselves to go that way, every one has a free will. And God does not refuse genuine repentance, but obviously Judas' so-called repentance was not genuine at the end. It says that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

    Well to me it seems that Judas was a part of being used in this fashion, and it does say to provide neither gold, silver etc., so it is no doubt something Jesus wanted them to obey. And really I got to leave that at that, for it does say this in the book of Acts: Act 1:17 (17) For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. It says he had obtained part of this ministry, and I will leave it at that, but thanks for the response anyways.

    We cannot assume that he had a corrupted or possessive spirit all the while he was there, but at some point it no doubt became corrupted, he was not called an apostle for nothing, God does not make mistakes. And yes he saw all the miracles and so forth and still got corrupted, yes that is amazing why someone would allow themselves to be corrupted in such a manner, but remember the Israelites in the wilderness, they saw the Red sea open, and all the ten plagues and yet many had still hardened hearts towards God.

    He was at the beginning, but not at the end. He fell because of transgression.

    It does not show at all at this point that Judas was given over to the love of money, no evidence whatsoever till later on.

    Judas Iscariot

    Well I checked it out about "his own place", and here is what John Gill says about this: (John Gill) (...that he might go to his own place; which may be understood of Judas, and of his going to hell, as the just punishment of his sin;...) Also Jimmy Swaggart says this, concerning "his own place": (Jimmy Swaggart) (self-will will take one to eternal hell, even as it did Judas) And I love what Jimmy says about the part that says how Judas by transgression fell, here is what he says: (Jimmy Swaggart) (tells us plainly that Judas once knew the Lord, for how can one fall from something to which one has never attained)

    No not in this case, but rather used of God in Christ's ministry. And here is another scripture: Mat 10:1 (1) And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

    I would understand why gotquestions would say such a thing because of the views they hold on to. Now in the end, I do not believe that Judas was saved, but he was called a disciple when he first followed Jesus, and I believe that he truly did follow Jesus, but later he hardened his heart and fell away from God. It was the ultimate betrayal, someone who actually knew Christ , lived with the Messiah, and yet betray him like this, no wonder the bible says that it had been better for him to have not been born. All 12 were given the ability to cast out devils and so forth: Mat 10:5-8 (5) These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: (6) But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (7) And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. (8) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. All 12 were part of Christ's ministry, it is just the way it is. I can quote tons of scholars or preachers who will say the opposite of gotquestions. And we all know that there is a scholar basically for most views.
  13. None of us are perfect and none of us have attained, but that does not make sin acceptable, and grace is not a license for sin, many times people respond like you did Blood Bought, because they do not want to deal with their issue, so they put something on someone else.
  14. I would totally disagree, my bearing on one's salvation is good, it just seems that there are things you are not getting as concerns the gospel, and grace is not a license for sin.
  15. Churches are also calling that which is evil good, and good evil, you should be concerned about being worldly, for most churches are worldly, and one of the fruits of false doctrine, is that it will lead you to walk in the works of the flesh, in one manner or another, so your lack of concern here is not good.
